	[DJW:]  This has been discussed before.  They are not
	explicitly labelled as deprecated, but they are not
	in the strict version and use of the transitional
	version is deprecated.

	There has been discussion of the politics behind not
	making the deprecation clear in the narrative part of
	the document, but at least one argument says that you
	can't deprecate something in a specification that
	was not in the previous specification.  I.E.
	frames have never been part of a full specification;
	they have only every existed in the transitionial versions
	of HTML 4.00, 4.01 and XHTML 1.0.
